August 19 after-noon brought a bomb explosion in Canal hotel, where UN crew for Iraq’s reconstruction reside, ripping UN special envoy, to Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello, to death among 17 others.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan condemned this act of terrorism which took along a reputed senior representative of United Nations saying, “ Nothing can excuse this act of unprovoked and murderous violence against men and women who went to Iraq for one purpose only: to help the Iraqi people…”.

A few days back, on August 7, a similar terrorist activity occurred outside Jordanian embassy in Baghdad, killing 9 people.

What do you think about the recent incident of killing of UN envoy in Baghdad?

Does the recent incident of Baghdad points towards blotted repute of UN on its role in ‘War in Iraq’?

Why do you think US forces have failed to protect recent wave of terrorism in Baghdad?

Do you believe such terrorist activities are being conducted by Iraqis or Non-Iraqis inside Iraq?
